Where is my cabinet


[link to this post]
 
How do I find out where my cabinet is? There seem to be two sets of cabinets in my street: 4 together at the very end. And one standalone half way down. Is there a map?

Put your telephone number in to http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/adsl/adslchecker.welcome That will tell you your cabinet number which is painted on the cabinet.

I doubt they are all phone cabinets. POTS and FTTC cabs come in pairs quite close together. The FTTC one will have a 240v sticker on it. You may also be looking at VM cable cabinets or even traffic light control cabinets etc.

As the earlier poster said - look for cabinet with the number on it the checker site says you are connected to (that will be the POTS cabinet).

There is no number painted on my cabinet, not even an old one that is well worn.

Think of a number, take a pot of white paint & brush - sorted grin

What exchange are you on, and what cabinet number is listed on https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/main.html when you search by telephone number

I believe they all are likely to be cable company cabinets
